I will commit patch for exporting aspect ratio but it won't solve this problem.
As standard says (note in Appendix I chapter 4.2):
"When sample aspect ratio information is not present (i.e. ASPECT_RATIO_FLAG = 0
or for Simple and Main profile), the sample aspect ratio is undefined and
All mentioned samples are coded as WMV3 - i.o.w. VC-1 Main profile, so aspect ratio
should be stored in container. BTW, newer MPlayer reads aspect ratio correctly.
